Weston's video, one of more than two thousand entries, depicted his own music video for Fallout Boy's song Young and Menace and featured two local, high school actors.
Weston received recognition during the 2017 Teen Indie Awards at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, October 7, 2017. According to contest information, his music video will be aired across Music Choice's entire platform and screened at the AMC Empire 25 theatre in New York City's Times Square!
The news came as no surprise to St. Francis Middle School Art Content Chair, Amy Chandler, who said, "He was one of my best art students way back when. He was obsessed with drawing eyes! Once he moved to high school, he fell in love with his video class."
